The historical city of Belfast is the capital, as well as the largest city in Northern Ireland. Belfast was named the best place to visit in 2018 by Lonely Planet and is one to add to the bucket list.
Known as the commercial and industrial centre in the 18th and 19th centuries, Belfast became Ireland’s pre-eminent industrial city known for its linen, rope-making, tobacco and shipbuilding at the end of the 19th century.
Today, the city is jam-packed with attractions, ranging from museums, parks and shopping centres, and is well-known for its lively nightlife, with its cosmopolitan bars and clubs. Bertz Jazz Bar is one of the city’s gems; with live jazz music complemented by a French bistro style menu and extensive wine list, set in an Art Deco 1930’s New York theme.
